We offer the 'Eagle's Nest' more value in this extraordinary 12,000 square foot, 8 bedroom & 8 full baths, 14 King beds with 3 half baths vacation rental home located at the entrance of the Galena Territory in Northwest Illinois. There are many golf courses within & just outside the G.T.A. The “Eagle’s Nest” is the largest private rental vacation rental home in the area. It is handicap accessible on the main and lower levels and situated on 12 pristine wooded acres.

The Eagle’s Nest will surpass even the most sophisticated tastes; it was designed for weddings, corporate events and meetings, golf, ski, groups, family reunions, multi family outings, wedding receptions and scrapbooking.

As you enter the main level great room, you immediately feel the spaciousness and luxury. The floor to ceiling windows provides natural lighting and panoramic views of the beauty in the surrounding woods. The centerpiece of the great room is the indigenous Dubuque limestone wood burning fireplace. It is flanked by warmth of fine leather furniture, natural hickory hardwood floors with large distinctive area rugs.

To the left is an intimate library nook. To the right are the twin dining tables seating for 16. The gourmet kitchen is fully equipped with a full open view. The granite countertops seating 12 and natural hickory cabinetry with stainless appliances is perfect for buffet style breakfast dinning.

Step out onto the main level furnished wood deck seating 20 with views and sounds of nature. Have a cookout on the gas grill or have a chef cook for you.

Each of the Eagle’s Nest (8) bedroom suites are themed Galena décor, with two bedrooms off the kitchen that are handicap accessible with one king bed in each bedroom suite. The other (6) bedroom suites have two king beds in each room. All (8) bedrooms have a luxurious jetted tub, two sinks, and walk-in custom designed tiled showers and nine foot ceilings. Two of the bedrooms have their own balcony with superb views.

There is plenty of room in this 4,000 sq. ft. lower level able to seat 120 when set up for reception style dinning. When set up for leisure, there is plenty of entertainment with the 55” TV, pool table, poker table, air hockey, foosball, and ping-pong gaming tables with 27’ of wet bar. The southwest wall is wide open to the patio with (6) double sliding glass doors allowing the perfect view to the 12 acres of wooded scenery. This will welcome guests onto the seventy foot furnished patio seating 20 for alfresco dining with granite fire pit. In the center of the patio stands the towering 80’ stone fireplace.

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 2007

              About the owner: Hi-Welcome to our home. We're Bill and Sue. Several years ago our friends invited us to take a drive out to Galena with them. We didn’t know then about the rich history Galena boasts of, the beauty of the deep vistas and the tranquility of the woods and abundant wildlife, however these are the wonders that brought us back....year after year. Each visit introduced us to new discoveries in Northwest Illinois and educational interests and experiences for our children.

              Why the Owner Chose Galena:
              Galena is close enough yet far enough away from home; 3 hours drive from Chicago making it the perfect get-away place for a weekend trip. It is tucked away in Northwest Illinois and unlike the rest of the state of IL, Galena is hilly and picturesque. Downtown Galena is like stepping back in time with mid 19th century architecture aligning Main Street and beyond. Located 8 miles from town is our home, nestled at the galena Territory. It is peaceful, yet a fun place for a large groups or extended family gathering. It is a solid built home. We love it here and hope you will too.

              The Unique Benefits at this House:
              Enjoy a game of pool or ping pong, challenge your friends to a game of poker, or relax in the outdoor private hot tub. Enjoy grilling with our 'never run out of gas' grill. Experience the natural surroundings; take a hike down the many trails in the Territory. Golf the 'General' or ski down the slopes of Chestnut Mountain Resort. Year-round activities make Galena the escape weekend destination
